Two quick links for you this week: one to news of Amazon’s plans to add lending of Kindle titles and another to Jeff Carlson’s iMovie review at Macworld.

Amazon to Debut Kindle Lending and Periodicals in Apps -- Amazon.com has announced that Kindle newspapers and magazines will be available within Kindle apps in the coming weeks, and more interestingly, that lending of Kindle titles will appear later this year, following in Barnes & Noble’s footsteps with the Nook. Each book can be lent once to another Kindle device for 14 days, and you cannot read the book while it’s lent out. Publishers will determine which books are lendable. Will Apple do something similar with the iBookstore? Seems unlikely at the moment.
